A Reunion

Remember the feeling you had at school when your mum did canteen duty? Or when your Dad appeared out of nowhere to give you a lift from the school bus? This is exactly the feeling I had today when I met my parents at Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof. That sense of anonymity was gone, replaced by the sweetness of familiarity. As I’ve said in the past, it’s a funny thing having company when you’re used to isolation. This evening when Tony and I went out unaccompanied, our bakery friend stopped us with alarm. What had we done with das kleine kind? We quickly reassured her. While seeing Rose’s rapture on being reunited with her Grandparents is a bittersweet reminder of the lost time, I’m thankful for what time we do have together. We have much planned for the four weeks ahead, including some local Stuttgart attractions, a country holiday in Burgundy and a trip to the UK. For now, our apartment is silent as the weary travelers (and the overwhelmed baby) catch a bit of precious shut eye.
